Entire Afghan is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together.
Work in pattern until Afghan is approx 43 (55)”. Without breaking yarn, work crochet edging around all sides.
Apply looped fringe at top and bottom edges, if desired. (Requires 8” wide piece of cardboard.)
Because of the texture of Homespun, the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or Fray CheckTM by Dritz®.
